Accommodations

Located near all the established amenities is the forest campground offering rentals for tents, tipis, bunkies, groups, & electric sites. As well, these sites are located closer to the amenities established by the previous owners.

Nestled further back into the park’s 268 acres is our Dark Sky Preserve – the first commercial preserve that the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada ever designated! Those looking to see the stars can rent one of our many meadow sites, the Milky Way Bunkie, or the coveted Stargazing Cabin.
